Indians optimistic Jason Kipnis returns this weekend
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Indians manager Terry Francona is optimistic that second baseman Jason Kipnis will return to action this weekend, MLB.com reports.

Kipnis is day-to-day with a hamstring injury after exiting Thursday's game. However, he felt much better by the time he got to the ballpark Friday. "He showed up and actually exhibited pretty good strength," Francona said Friday before the game. "He's sore enough where we're not going to play him today. We would see about tomorrow, but I think we're more in that range, as opposed to four or five days. I think when you say 'day to day,' we really are legitimately day to day."
